Spin Your Way to Creativity By Exploring Different Types of Spinning Yarns


Do you also love to knit, crochet, or weave? If so, you know that the type of yarn you use is important. Unfortunately, many different spinning yarns are available on the market today, and it can be hard to decide which is right for you. At The Hook and Needle Nook LLC in the Coeur d'Alene area, we carry a wide variety of spinning yarns, perfect for any project you have in mind.

Let's explore some of the most popular types of spinning yarns offered at our shop!

  • Wool Yarn - Wool yarn works best when working with large knitting needles or hooks as it tends to be on the heavier side. It’s also quite elastic which makes it great for sweaters and mittens but not so much for hats because they tend to stretch over time. Wool is also very warm and insulating making it an ideal choice for winter garments like scarves and hats!
  • Cotton Yarn - Cotton yarn is lightweight and soft making it great for baby items like blankets or clothing since it won't irritate sensitive skin. It can also come in a variety of colors ranging from bright neon to subtle pastels. Cotton does not stretch out as easily as wool does, but it can still be used for a variety of projects including bags, throws, shawls, and even home decor items like rugs or curtains! 
  • Acrylic Yarn - Acrylic yarn is one of the most popular choices among spinners due to its affordability and versatility. It’s lightweight yet durable making it great for sweaters, hats, blankets, and more! Acrylic comes in a variety of colors from bright primary hues to muted pastels so there’s something for everyone in this category! 

No matter what type of project you plan on creating—from sweaters to baby blankets—there is sure to be a spinning yarn that meets your needs here at The Hook and Needle Nook LLC in the Coeur d'Alene area! We offer a wide selection from wool to cotton to acrylic so that you can explore your creative side without breaking the bank.
